Port conveyance 5Z Nigerian language Manya Vee Selects is now MaJe Gallery ow in its thirteenth year of business here in Edmonds, colorful gallery Manya Vee selects is changing its name to MaJe Gallery! "MaJe better reflects where we are as artists and part- ners," Manya Vee said. Owners Jeff Stilwell and Manya Vee founded the gal- lery in 2000. The new name is taken from the first letters of their first names. Representing works by over one hundred American arti- sans, works by Manya Vee and Stilwell can also be found at the gallery. Manya Vee, a jew- elry designer of two decades, is currently fusing silver and wire-wrapping in gold. Stilwell, long a fixture of the local theatre scene, has grown lately into an illustrator. "It just dawned on me one day that I can say so much more in a series of comics than in one ninety minute play," Stilwell commented. "My thrashing philosopher, bosatsu, has plenty to say about beauty, for example," Stilwell added. "If only he can keep from crashing his skateboard." His comics can be found on JeffStilwell. Manya Vee and Stilwell are also known for their public service in the arts. They founded and Stilwell di- rects the celebrated Edmonds Art Walk, easily recognized as one of the largest art walks in the state. More recently, they founded and Stilwell directs Edmonds Mural Society, which boasts Jeff Stilwell's new comic, the thrashing philosopher bosatsu may be found at MaJe Gallery and on one of the most popular collec- tions of murals in the Pacific Northwest. To celebrate the name change, a drawing featuring the two artists will be held on March 31. Two lucky winners will win either a Manya Vee mixed metal pendant or an original illustration of Stil- well's bosatsu. For more information, visit or 409 Main Street, or call 425.776.3778. Manya Yee's new line of fused silver wrapped with gold wire may be found at MaJe Gallery. Beginners' Bubble and Squeak The couple had Edmonds roots, from time spent work- ing for Rick Steves. We were attracted by a motor tour they were offering through southern England after their stint with Europe Through the Back Door. It promised lodging in attrac- tive bed and breakfast estab- lishments in villages like Lands End and Penzance and all of our meals would be served in picturesque pubs our leaders had scouted out, often found at the dead end of country roads. We bellied up to the bar with the locals. If you like what The Beacon is doing, please support our advertisers.Tell them you saw their ad in THE BEACON Like them, we ordered pints of "best bitter." According to brew experts, a best bitter is actually not too bitter with just enough hops to be refreshing and smooth going down thanks to a healthy quan- tity of English 2-row bar- ley or Marris Otter malt. Got that? I didn't either. But I re- call the response of a ma- jor league catcher who was asked why he didn't do TV commercials for his favorite American beer. "I can't remember ever hav- ing a bad one," he explained. I can't remember having "a bad one" on our southern Eng- lish tour. But after ordering an- other "best bitter" one night in some place like Crows-an-Wry I finally asked the bartender whether there was such a thing as a "bad bitter? "Yes there is," he answered without a pause. "It's called Bud Lite." I thought that was a local joke. But it substantiated a feeling I had long harbored. I have watched at least 3,729 Bud Lite commercials on sports channels. But I have never de- veloped a taste for the product. Maybe it's my upbringing. I remember how Montana bartenders reacted when first asked if they served light beer. They nodded, partially filled a glass under the tap, then finished it off with an inch of water. Well, nobody is laughing now. Consumers across the country recently filed class- action lawsuits charging [[ED] Anheuser-Busch with EATER n BY JOHN OWEN IEATER@COCAST.NET watering their beer as a cost-saving strategy. You can be sure the Guinness Brewery has never been cursed with this suspicion. You can drink it or chew it. On trips to Ireland I developed a fondness for Murphy's, mainly because a glass of Guin- hess usually sat under the tap for 10 minutes, while the suds subsided. It gave me a nervous twitch. On trips to the Emerald Isle I found Murphy,s a perfect ac- companiment with corned beef and cabbage. Here is a simplified version we occasionally cook at home. Beginners' Bubble and Squeak Thaw one package of frozen Brussel sprouts. Boil about four potatoes, then peel and halve them when cool. Open one can of corned beef. Toss the halved potatoes, sliced corned beef and the sprouts into a casserole. Pour in one cup of consomm6. Season with salt, pepper, mar- joram and thyme. Bake covered in a casserole for 30 minutes in a 350 oven. Serves two. Answers on pac e 5
